2d Faculty Fellows Elisabeth CampThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. She obtained her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania before coming to Rutgers in 2013. Her research focuses on thoughts and utterances that don’t fit within the standard philosophical model of the human mind as a propositional operator. In the realm of communication, this includes phenomena like metaphor, sarcasm, and slurs. In the realm of minds, it extends to maps, non-human animal cognition, imagination, and emotion. Recent publications include “Why Metaphors Make Good Insults: Perspectives, Presupposition, and Pragmatics” (Philosophical Studies, 2015) and “Wordsworth’s Prelude, Poetic Autobiography, and Narrative Constructions of the Self” (Nonsite.org, 2011).

Area of Interest: Cognitive perspectives and imagination, metaphor, sarcasm, slurs, maps, concepts, and animal cognition.
